Careers at XVELA

Moving the world's goods

At XVELA, we’re building integrated cloud applications to address the $10B worth of inefficiencies caused by the lack of transparency and connectivity between the various players in the ocean supply chain, from the biggest shipping lines in the world to the global network of ports where their massive container ships deliver several football fields worth of goods each day.

It’s an industry full of complex challenges, and we’re looking for a few bright minds to help us solve them.

A culture of collaboration

Every team member is keenly aware of our goals and what's going on in every aspect of our business, resulting in a focused, motivating, and cooperative place to work. Our product is based on information sharing and open collaboration, and so is our culture.

Best of both worlds

As a subsidiary of Navis, the world leader in marine terminal operating solutions for nearly 30 years, XVELA provides employees the “best of both worlds” – the entrepreneurial energy of a small, young company with the stability and resources of an established industry player.

Getting ship done

We’re building multi tenant, graphically rich, globally scalable applications with API integrations to data sources including port community systems, vessel tracking AIS, and terminal operating systems. Our work often goes beyond shipping operations to touch upon subjects like tides, naval architecture, and even physics.

Whole life balance

It’s more than just work-life balance. We believe that your work life needs to support healthy balance in your whole life. Comprehensive benefits like healthcare, retirement savings match, and financial planning services are complemented by perks including education assistance, a charitable giving match, and free fruit & healthy snacks.

We hella <3 Oakland

We are headquartered in Oakland’s historic, sunny Jack London Square, where we have a front row seat to the container ships berthing at the Port of Oakland. Our office is accessible by ferry, BART, and Amtrak and we offer free secured parking. We also happen to be surrounded by a half dozen craft breweries and taprooms, but who’s counting?

Diverse from day one

At XVELA, diversity isn’t just a corporate initiative. Our global team has always benefited from and celebrated our diverse working environment. It’s a culture that reflects the extremely diverse nature of our industry, which involves people from all over the world working together to move goods safely around the planet.


a global team that’s changing the face of global trade

We're always looking for bright, top-tier candidates who thrive on challenge, innovation, and the opportunity to make an impact on a global scale. In addition to our Oakland headquarters, we have a network of satellite offices around the world including Flensburg, Hong Kong, Chennai, and Singapore.
